President Akufo Addo has lifted the mandatory wearing of nose masks in public.
“From tomorrow, Monday, 28th March, the wearing of facemasks is no longer mandatory,” he said.
This was disclosed during his 28th COVID-19 address to the nation on Sunday night.
According to him, the low levels of infections coupled with the significant numbers of people who have been vaccinated informed his decision “to revise the COVID-19 restrictions.”
He said: “With countries in the ECOWAS Community, especially in our neighbouring countries, presently, like us, recording very low levels of infections, and having significant numbers of our people vaccinated, and on the advice of the national COVID-19 Taskforce and the health experts, I have taken the decision to revise the COVID-19 Restrictions, enacted under E.I. 64.”
Fellow Ghanaians, get vaccinated
“To my Fellow Ghanaians who have not received the jab, I urge you to take it. To those listening to the propaganda by the conspiracy theorists and those who are still sceptical about the efficacy of the vaccine, it has been a year since my wife and I got vaccinated; it has not disrupted our physical wellbeing, nor has it caused us to be sick. We are, touch wood, hale and hearty, like the other 13.1 million Ghanaians who have been vaccinated,” he said.
